The Island was recommended to me by a friend who knew the management. As soon as I emailed regarding a reservation the friendly, warm service was a delight. With nothing being too much trouble.
Myself and a friend stayed in a loft room, they may be small but it's all you need, comfy beds, chic bathroom and lovely clean linen. Although we didn't use the pool it's really inviting. It was a great place to stay for our frist 3 nights in Bali (although everything after was a slight disappointment!) This is certainly "flash-packing" rather than backpacking!
The only downside is the alley the hotel is located down, although well lit, if you're planning on being out late (and maybe by yourself for girls) it can be a bit eerie walking down it when the streets are dead...our plan...don't come home til dawn ;)
The Island may be on the high side of most travellers budgets but for a treat it is great, thanks to Claire & Neil for organising our stay, we'll be back next year for sure!
